    Although it has been suggested that an imbalance in buccolingual pressure may play a role in dental compensation of the molars and asymmetry in the mandibular dental arch in subjects with facial asymmetry, it is still unclear whether buccolingual pressure is associated with this phenomenon....

    Asymmetric growth occurs frequently in the mandibulofacial region, but little atteution has been given to asymmetry in the temporo-mandibular joint. The purpose of this study was to clarify the feature of asymmetry in the condylar long axis and its relation to upper first molar rotation. Records...

    Angle Class II malocclusion is defined according to the anteroposterior molar relationship with or without a discrepancy between basal bones. Maxillary protrusion and mandibular retrusion are included in this pattern. When orthodontic treatment starts at an early age, it is possible to affect...
